I love this author and love this book!
This story takes place in the 1850's in beautiful but poor, Appalachian Mountains. The chacters are very relatable. Based on a Scottish tradition, a man who is chosen, by lottery, to be the "sin eater" must live apart from the rest of the society. When someone dies, he comes and takes on the dead persons sins onto himself. The young Cadi, who is carrying a horrible burden, will come face to face with this man. The moral of the story, so to speak, is that there is only one way, to find redemption.
I highly recommend this book! I loved everything about it! It will tug on your heart strings long after you turn the last page.
